Lately, I've been back on the yogurt train. I have this love/love relationship with yogurt. I LOVE the way greek yogurt tastes; that tang is just so right to me. I also LOVE the nutrition profile of plain yogurt....Read More
It's here! I know, you've been waiting so patiently for this recipe and all that waiting has finally paid off. The protein waffle is a gift tossed down from heaven. It's fluffy on the inside, yet crisps up & holds its own on the outside. It's sweet, but packs a nutritional punch. It's decadent AND guilt free. HELLO, I'LL TAKE ONE AND ONE MORE AND MAYBE ONE MORE AFTER THAT!Read More
I don't always have a solid plan going into dinner. I do a lot of meal planning and prepping on the weekends. I peruse the internet for new ideas, I do a whole lot of chopping, and I stand over a stove for a majority of my Saturday & Sunday to make sure there's plenty to grab during the week. It's great, but it makes cooking entire meals for dinner a little harder during the week. More often than not, we're eating leftovers or mostly leftovers with one or two fresh cooked additions. Believe me, there's nothing wrong with that, it gets the job done, it gets the people fed, but every once in a while you need a whole meal where none of the parts have been reheated.Read More
Once again, an Ambitious Kitchen recipe came to my rescue this week. I have this habit of finding a new food blog or instagram and binge scrolling through all their old posts. In my frantic scrolling last Thursday, I happened upon a ton of chicken ideas to try on my meal prep Sunday. This crockpot salsa chicken was one of them!Read More

I am always trying to find new ways to season plain chicken breasts. I prep 2 family sized packs of chicken every Sunday to last us the week (along with all the other stuff I make) and I've made my fair share of flops. If it's not seasoned enough or not quite right, then we're stuck choking down flavorless, overcooked, chicken sawdust. Not fun. No more.Read More

To be honest with you guys, I don't technically know what a buddah bowl is. From what I've seen, they seem to be bowls of food, mostly veggies, protein, and grains all in one. I figured this bowl I made for lunch today qualified and thus the sweet potato buddah bowl was born.Read More
Saturday mornings often times suck. I have to wake up early to workout. I'm still tired from working out the night before. There's never enough coffee. However, there is one shining beam of light on those dreary mornings and that is breakfast.
On RP you get more food (mostly more carbs) around your workout. When I workout first thing in the morning that translates into a big breakfast with all the fixin's post wod :D
So here's what we've got...
Egg White Veggie Omelet - Spray a skillet with olive oil spray & cook spinach, asparagus, peppers, & zucchini over medium heat until desired doneness. Pour in 165g of egg whites, let cook, fold, & flip.
Dave's Killer Bread - 1 slice, toasted.
Oatmeal - Cook 1/2 cup old fashioned oats with water. Mash 1.5 oz of banana with some cinnamon. Stir in oats, add a few berries, & a splash of vanilla extract.
3oz protein / 2 handfuls greens / 60g Carbs / 0g Fat
Sometimes what we really need is not a recipe, not a health & nutrition fact, or a wellness incentive. Instead, what we need, is some inspiration.
Today's breakfast inspiration is titled sunny and bright because it just brightens up your morning as soon as you see it.Read More
